New Perspectives presents


Written and performed by Daniel Hoffmann-Gill Directed by Angharad Jones

Join Daniel as family and friends to experience the legendary life and times of his tricky, but sometimes wonderful, dad Dave through a tour-de-force autobiographical performance, part tribute, part hilarious stand-up and occasional lip­syncing. Contains strong language.

My Dad, Dave, died on 5 November 2015 of complications related to dementia. It was f*cking awful. But the eulogy I gave was brilliant. It deserves a bigger crowd.

“My way to see if from the molten wreckage of dementia some humanity, art and wonder can be salvaged. I f*cking hope so.

Tender and unflinching” – The Scotsman ★★★★

“A thoughtful, funny farewell” – The Guardian

‘Potent storytelling” – The Stage★★★★
